My Dad's old Vista computer was showing its age, so it was time to build him a new rig. He requested a computer that had a SD card reader, DVD/BluRay drive, and SSD. He uses his computer primary for camera photo uploading, Photoshop editing, geologic map creation, and word processing.
I really liked the look of the brand-new Termaltake Core X31 case, especially since it satisfied the need for two 5.25" drive bays. The case is very sturdy, well built, and thoughtfully laid out; leaving many options available for customization. There is plenty of room for advanced cooling options for those who need it.
The ASUS H170 motherboard was also a very specific pick, as it is one of only a few LGA 1151 motherboards available that have TWO on-board USB 3.0 headers. I chose a H170 to save money because overclocking was not necessary for this build.
I recommend the Atech Flash Technology Pro-77U for anyone who needs a memory card reader. It fits a 5.25" drive bay, and appears to be the only memory card reader on the market that runs EXCLUSIVELY through a USB 3.0 motherboard header. All the other card readers on the market are older and use at least two different connectors, such as a UBS 2.0 header and a SATA connector, to achieve full functionality.
The other components in this build are pretty self-explanatory.
